Learning “Machine Learning” by Example
A quick overview
There are several online machine learning courses offered right now, Coursera, Udacity, Caltech, Stanford. This course is based on the “learning by example” principle. The students will be introduced in machine learning algorithms and data analysis techniques by actively working on a real dataset.
In this course we will not follow the traditional lecturing style with powerpoint style. It will be taught in lab sessions. We will have an one hour session every week. The instructor will present an algorithm along with a dataset. The students will use the language of their preference to code the algorithm and then apply it to the dataset.
The preferred language is python along with the http://www.mortardata.com platform.
